Call for the LTO Training

Training for LTOs

ENEMO is pleased to announce a call for participants of the LTO training to take place in Tbilisi in September, 2016. The training invites qualified observers from ENEMO member organizations to receive a training on standardized ENEMO Long Term Observation methodology. The first of its kind, the LTO training will be a series of trainings that aims at creating a large pool of certified LTOs for future ENEMO missions.


Over the last couple years, ENEMO has been undergoing a comprehensive internal capacity building and institutional strengthening aimed at establishing ENEMO as a strong and self-sustainable organization with better structure for governance and execution.  Along with these efforts, ENEMO intends to improve the quality of its election related activities.

The Long-Term Observer (LTO) training is designed to better ensure understanding of ENEMO methodology, improve quality of reporting and therefore the quality of the long-term observation.  While individually qualified as observers, coming from different countries, ENEMO LTOs have different observation and reporting experiences, methods, skills and reporting habits.  ENEMO envisions advancing skills of potential ENEMO observers through standardized LTO trainings and contributing to improved observation and higher quality reporting during ENEMO missions.  The standardized LTO trainings will enable ENEMO to have a wider pool of trained and qualified candidates available for its missions.

About the training:

LTO Training is expected to gather twenty participants from the different ENEMO member organizations, including the Associate members, for a training of potential ENEMO LTOs.
